We were blown away by this 14th century villa on arrival. Beautiful decor, great room and amazing views. The staff were lovely, friendly and so helpful and the pool, which was one of the main reasons for booking this hotel, was heated, clean and great to swim in. The gym had very good equipment and it even had a Turkish steam room.
We ate in the restaurant one night and, although very pricey, it was fantastic!
What lets the hotel down however is that the breakfasts are typically Italian ie very sparse. If you like cake, cheese and ham then you’re onto a winner but the selection of cereals ( not even muesli) juices ( just orange) and the absence of mushrooms, beans and sausages didn’t go down well with us at all!
Although we loved the Tuscan views from the hotel and the vineyards and olive groves we didn’t love that we either had to get a taxi ( approx 15 euros a trip) or the local bus ( every hour and not Sundays) to the City of Florence.
Also, the hotel only provided 2 bottles of water in our room for the first night - after that you had to buy it which, for a five star hotel is not acceptable.
Saying all that though, we had a lovely time and will certainly recommend this hotel.More
